I had the privilege to meet Amore Sanderlin in February of 2023 when my husband and I decided to pre-plan for our burials. Amore answered every email and call I placed to her with a million questions as I entered into unknown territory.

In May of 2023, the untimely death of my daughter occurred. My heart led me straight to Beach Funeral. I felt like family with each member of Beach Funeral who I helped us get through this time of grief. I gave Amore limited information about where my daughter's remains were and she took care of the rest. The staff went to North Chesterfield to pick up my baby girl's body. All I could tell my family was, Beach Funeral is bringing my baby girl home with tears in my eyes.

Beach Funeral is a professional organization with lots of business. They treat you like you are "the only one" who is grieving. Every detail was taken care of ~ Check, Every question was answered ~ Check, Every heartache was comforted ~ Check!

You will not know everything you need to do for final rites for your loved one. Entrust the care in Beach Funeral Home. All your worries, fears, and anxiety will be eased at first meet of Amore, Chiquita, Bridgette, Timothy, Nevel, Mr. Sanderlin! I highly recommend Beach Funeral!

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Beach Funeral Services for my mother.
From the moment I walked through the doors I was always treated with lots of kindness and and service with a smile. When my brother and I first met Amore the director, she was very professional and patient with us. Never showed any kind of frustration when we kept changing our minds for mom's arrangements.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank Beach Funeral Services for such wonderful and thoughtful support and consideration to my family. You have provided services for many of my family members throughout the past few years. Each time the service rendered for the preparation of our loved ones has been excellent. I would personally like to acknowledge and thank Bridgette Armstrong for her outstanding work and involvement in a very delicate time of need. Not only did she make our family feel welcomed but she went out of her way to make sure everyone felt comfortable and at ease with the process. Also, her presentation of our deceased love ones stood out with such care allowinng for a peaceful lasting memory. I highly recommend Beach Funeral to friends and family. Thank you so much!!

We had our first experience with Beach Funeral Services just over 11 years ago, and, despite our grief over the loss of my father-in-law, working with Kevin Sanderlin and his team was thoroughly wonderful. When my mother-in-law passed this April, there was no question where we would go to help honor her. From our first phone call, the Beach Funeral Services staff was compassionate and supportive. When we had to rearrange our plans for a funeral Mass at Mom’s church due to a delay, Beach Funeral worked with us to host a memorial service at their location on Bonney Road. They accommodated us in every way that we asked without hesitation. Thanks to them, the memorial turned out to be an amazing tribute to our Mom. While the entire staff was fantastic, we especially appreciated the personal, caring assistance of Nevell and Bridgette. With much gratitude, Cyndi & Joe Kight and the entire Kight family

On behalf of the family of Barry Cleveland Roberts, I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to each and every member of your staff. I personally was ever so grateful to have Beach handle the details of the arrangements for my brother as I was able to make arrangements from Baltimore, Maryland. I have never had such professional services rendered to our family in our hour of bereavement. Every detail was right on point. When I arrived in Virginia to see my brother's remains, I was totally blown away. I give this company a ten star rating. Thank you all again for serving me and my family.

On behalf of our family, I want to personally thank you for the outstanding services provided for my mother, Corine H Merriwether. We were thoroughly pleased and impressed by your craftsmanship throughout the entire process. The ownership, managers, and staff are all family-oriented individuals that strive to ensure grieving families are catered to and accommodated in every way possible. The care shown by Beach Funeral is above reproach. My mother actually requested Beach Funeral after receiving the same tender care and love when my brother, Wayland "Fooky" Merriwether, passed away in December 2019. We will forever be grateful to Beach Funeral for treating our deceased loved ones as their own!

During this difficult time in my life, Amore was truly an angel who helped to make a heartbreaking loss, bearable. While my heart is heavy, I can now anticipate with great joy the Celebration of Life for my aunt. The level of customer service she personally provided was beyond exceptional. She was extremely thorough and detailed. Amore listened to my concerns and offered guidance to ensure my vision was realized. She never tried to rush me through the process, but to the contrary she made me fell as if she truly cared about my feelings and provided me with additional time to make the best decision for my loved one. No one really has the heart to deal with the burial of a loved one, but it's so nice to know there are individuals like Amore, and a business like Beach Funeral & Cremation Services INC that sincerely cares for the customer. Thank you!

Mother Gatlin was a virtuous Woman of God who treated everyone with the same kindness and lovely smile. She was a soft spoken woman who spoke above a whisper when giving individual advice. She was always well dressed, elegant, and was a leader and teacher in the school system and in the church. Her kindness and basic good self will never be forgotten. She has earned that long white robe and her position among those who have gone on before her.
Sweet Rest, Mother Gatlin. A pioneer, a soldier in the army of the Lord. My condolences to her family. Dinah Hughes

Thank you a,gain Amore of Beach Funeral Home for your Dignity, professionalism and understanding during this difficult time.

I don’t know where to begin. Let me start from the first meeting with Amore. Told her I had just received news there was no more that could be done for my husband. I was alone, wanted it that way. Wanted to pre plan and start preparing things my way. She worked with me from beginning to end and I mean beginning to end. In fact, the President/Owner stepped in when she couldn’t!

The day Steven passed, my pastors at The Mount, stood watch over him until I returned to the hospital. They Blessed him and they made the calls to Beach to immediately come for Steven at my request, NOT A PROBLEM! It couldn’t have been 3 hours later when they were contacting me inquiring as to how I wish my man groomed! The next day, I would take Steven’s things to Beach to have him dressed and to further complete the contract and any additional items or requests I had and I did. Was met with patience, condolences and prayers. Did I say patience? Because cries and breakdowns at the continued reality was becoming evident.

As Steven was a 20 year veteran, I had worked hard to give him every honor due him and Beach was on task and VERY FAMILIAR. In laying his things out, this young fellow handled EVERY ITEM OF CLOTHING MEMORABILIA ETC WITH LOVING CARE!! Nothing tossed around. Listened to my request for special items; asked me any and all questions just to clarify. He, during this whole session, noted each item given gently placed it back in the garment bag I’d supplied. I’d also supplied eyeglasses and a portrait of Steven and I.

Next, would be the day of solidifying or at least bringing together the program for Steven. It was massive and I’m ready to pay for it as Steven’s life was well lived and fulfilled and I wanted nothing unknown to anyone. With exception of my forgetfulness of a copy of his novel, everything else was in his program.
The young lady took 85 pages to include one page of nothing but Naval medals and ribbons and turned it into a two page back and front with an insert. It was AWESOME 👏!

Not done yet with my review!! The viewing of my husband was 😳 OMG AS THEY SAY!! He truly truly was just sleeping. Nothing imitation. He looked himself and I mean that. His grooming was totally on point. Found not one thing out of place. Steven was dressed as if I had did it myself as I often loved to do and I broke down with joy and pain but thanking Jesus for no more pain.

The video they made swept me off my feet! The portrait and flowers along with the Military displays were AWESOME all set up by Beach Funeral Services.

No, No still have more to say! Being retired government and Steven military, I’m on time, no waiting. Things orchestrated ahead of time. The day of the funeral we are assembled by my list and Beach accommodated. Left the house for the church on time!

Prior to that, Beach would surprise me with the fact that I will release a dove I had NOT requested and we did. During the service, Beach would present me with a memorable item I knew nothing about and it just tore me up both made my day!

As my husband would be buried with Full Military Honors, Beach handled all of that to include rifle shells. Let’s just go back and let me tell ya Beach had its own singing Pastor coming down the aisle BLOWING! Y’all, they were AWESOME!! I’m missing my man every minute but that they, Steven wasn’t just another customer, he was a member of the Beach Family and highly recommend them to you, thank you for my journey, God Bless.

The family of Garth Anthony Bryce, Sr just wanted to thank you for the exquisite service and compassion the staff at Beach Funeral & Cremation Services provided during a very difficult time for us.
Any questions or requests we had, you fulfilled each one with dignity, grace & patience. We know we were a "little" difficult because we wanted everything to be perfect for Garth's Celebration of Life service and you proved that you welcomed & met our challenges & expectations.
Beach did a phenomenal job from the very first time we walked through your doors until we laid Garth to rest. Beach was also very welcoming even after everything was done with a few special requests I had.
Lastly, the surprise gift was awesome. It is truly a comforting reminder of my & Garth's love for each other.
We are forever thankful.

We know that there are many choices in the area. But for our families future needs, Beach Funeral and Cremation Services will continually be our first preference.

I am so happy that Beach Funeral Services was recommended to me. I approached the task of making arrangements with dread but was immediately relieved when I got there. Their professionalism and compassion were outstanding and I was amazed at how easy and efficient the process was. The day of the service was just as organized . The ceremony went smoothly and everyone loved the picture slideshow and the releasing of the dove. Thank you Beach Funeral Services for everything!

Beach Funeral Services provided our family the utmost professional services during the death of our loved one, Samuel Caldwell. From the moment when they arrived at our home to receive the body of Samuel, they were courteous and helpful. They were very professional in the way the removed Samuel from our home. The two gentlemen allowed the Hospice representative to complete the paperwork, so we could continue to deal with our grief as a family. When we arrived at the funeral home to make the final arrangements, we were greeted warmly. Keith McEachin was a blessing to us. He helped us without making us feel rushed. He allowed us to make changes without making us feel that he didn't have time for us to change our minds. He was very professional in explaining paperwork, details about the obituary, and the video. When we saw the final copy of the program, the video, and the obituary we were truly amazed at the beauty of all of them. The professionalism shown was phenomenal. The program bought us all to tears. Keith set up an appointment with the cemetery also. Mr. McEachin's gregarious personality helped us to relax and not feel overwhelmed. Thanks Keith. Amore Sanderlin too was extremely professional in her phase of service. She allowed us to make choices without being pushy. She explained the intricate details of our choices and allowed us to make and even to change choices. We never felt that she was pressuring us to make selections. The day of the service she arrived at our home and was again very professional, yet kind and supportive. The graveside service was beautiful. The military service and the dove ceremony were emotional, yet dignified. As we saw the casket and the vault together, we were pleased at the details that Ms. Sanderlin had reviewed with us. We would recommend Beach to our family and friends in their time of loss. Again, thanks to all the Beach Funeral Staff.

We would like to thank Beach Funeral & Cremation Services for the superb way they performed their duties while conducting our son's funeral and burial services. We dealt with Keith and Amore initially. Their patience and professionalism reassured us in a time of sorrow and confirmed we choose the right funeral home to handle the going home services for our precious son. The funeral and burial was handled so thoughtful and professionally by the entire staff that it really put us at peace. No one could have done a better job! We highly recommend Beach Funeral & Cremation Services.

I was shocked by a call from Ross of Lynn's death just hours after meeting Lynn, Ross and her 2 precious boys. Lynn worked with me for 5 plus years on finding Justice for Shellie Carson, who was murdered in Aug.2005. She was passionate to help the Carson family in her effort to have closure for the Family. She worked with me on the Justice For Shellie web site/blog with valuable contributions. Both parents were aware of her work and effort and were delighted to have her on the web site team. She also knew Bill who was very appreciated of her contributions. Lynn and I meet almost monthly and when she had William he would join us and Noah when he was born.I was also introduced to Ross who also participated in helping us in our efforts . Every meeting was an opportunity to see the "boys" who were such a joy to both parents.Lynn 's effort in helping the Carson Family speaks to her helping 2 people that needed closure. Both died without knowing the truth about their precious daughter. Lynn was unselfish and worked hard to contribute to our effort for Justice. She was a valued friend I and the Carson parents can only express our gratitude and Respect for Lynn's helping another person. She gained my Respect and love. I will also thing about her and her"boys"

I truly want to say that Beach Funeral Services has given my family ( Lucille Harold Ivey) the greatest and upmost respect and professionalism in our greatest time of sorrow. I know our family wasn't the easiest to work with but you could never tell with the patience and kindness that was displayed throughout your staff. Although, this was a first time experience for us, you all have made it one that was very enjoyable. I have never been to a place of business where the whole entire staff is awesome!. I want to give Amore a special thank you for allowing me to use one of the hats she had on hand, she was very sympathetic and understanding to what a "Bad Hair Day" is. Also, thank you to the young gentlemen driver I was returning the hat to and he told me I could keep it. That was a blessing for my hair!! Thank you. Everything you guys have done and shown was truly amazing and will never be forgotten. God Bless you all.

Beach Funeral Services were recommended to our family from my mother’s church. They provided honest, friendly and professional service. I would in turn recommend their services also.

From the moment we entered their premises, Mr. Sanderlin along with his daughter Amore made us feel welcome and they immediately put us at ease. This was the first funeral we had to arrange and was obviously apprehensive on what we would need to do. Working with Mr. Keith McEachin who explained all in detail, giving recommendations when needed. They itemized every aspect of the service, and with no hidden costs, we came away from the initial meeting knowing how much the day would cost.

They arranged many aspects of the day, leaving us to concentrate on other aspects, all at a reasonable fee.
In summary, their professionalism made us feel safe to trust them to deliver all the aspect of the funeral arrangements. And this is invaluable when you are saying goodbye to a loved one. It helped us to grieve with our family and friends.

The Montgomery family would highly recommend Beach Funeral Services. They will take excellent care of your loved one.
